St. John's Dutch Hollow Cemetery, Sheldon, NY

In the early 1800s a number of German immigrants settled in the western side of Sheldon Township, prompting the area to be named Dutch Hollow. By 1840 the first St. John's church had been built and before 1850 land was donated for a final resting place for members of the church.

The cemetery is located near the northwest corner of the intersection of Dutch Hollow and Centerline roads in Sheldon Township.
